Is there a minimum wealth requirement to invest in EB5, apart from the money I will be investing?


From an immigration law perspective, there is no “wealth” requirement. However, regional centers are subject to U.S. securities law. As such, many regional centers will only accept investments from those who qualify as “accredited investors”. This is someone who either (a) earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year; or (b) has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). This investor bulletin from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission provides more information on qualifying as an accredited investor.

For non-regional center cases, qualifying as an accredited investor would rarely ever be an issue. (21.Aug.2017)
